    Default Hey guys, guess what!

    Bleacher Report's got Lowry and DeRozan as top 25 players in the NBA. They are placed 22nd and 23rd respectively.
    As for Ross, Valanciunas, Johnson, Vasquez and Patterson: 181, 125 126, 114 and 192 respectively.

    "Bullshit, Bleacher Report is stupid and sucks. Demar isn't anywhere near Top 25. More like Top 250", they will say.
    And the debate will begin again.

    They have Norris cole and Chris Anderson above t ross and batman. We'll that shows their Miami bias.

    Apparently derozan is the best at shutting down opponents going ISO. I never saw it hahahaha

    Can we get confirmation on this part:

    Quote Bleacher Report wrote:
    DeRozan's reputation on the defensive end might not be as sparkling as some of the more well-known standouts, but it should be. No player in the NBA has been better at shutting down players in isolation, and his only real on-ball flaw comes when he gets caught in a post-up situation without a weak-side defender giving him support.
    Also, I like this part:
    A feisty competitor who plays with his heart on his sleeve, DeRozan doesn't exactly have a penchant for drama. At least, not the kind that's detrimental to the Toronto Raptors. Between that and a fairly clean bill of health, there's no reason for negativity here.
    LOL

    Is there any way to delete a thread? I fully forgot every thread mentioning DeRozan's name turns into a hate thread.

    It's from synergy stats. Basically ignores the fact that Casey hides DD on the lesser wing player every game, so his points allowed per isolation is really low.

    At least they've contributed to championship teams, the real question is how the fuck Henry "only on the 76ers because I'm terrible and they're trying to tank" Sims is above Patterson.

    22 and 23. Fairly accurate I'd say. They don't get as much media coverage as we do, and based off the playoff's, they were at best 'ok'

    If that's a stat, there's probably a stat that shows chuck Hayes is the most reliable 3 point shooter of lifeeeee

    I bet you the moment Sam Hinkie saw Sims on the list he reflexively tried to trade him for a second round pick.

    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
